Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…
David Stern and the NBA were smart to figure out a way to get Jeremy Lin involved in the All-Star weekend. The Rookie/Sophomore game was the most watched since 2004. A few guys named Wade, Bosh, James, and Anthony participated in that one.
It really is a shame that Slam Dunk Contest got top billing on All-Star Saturday Night. Do you even remember who won and why?
In case you forgot, Jeremy Evans (Utah Jazz) won by jumping over Kevin Hart in the final round. Yes, that Kevin Hart. The one we can all jump over.
Down by 2 points with less than 10 seconds left in the game LeBron James chose to pass the ball. Why does that story seem so familiar? Will he ever stop shrinking in big moments?
Kobe Bryant broke Michael Jordan’s All-Star scoring record and later on a foul from Dwyane Wade broke his nose. He stayed in the game and taunted LeBron for passing on the final shot.
You can always guarantee at least one person will show up to the NBA All Star game wearing something like this:
Robert Griffin, III and Andrew Luck both performed well at the NFL Scouting Combine. Unfortunately, we have to endure 60 days of comparisons between the two before either of them gets drafted at #1.
Apparently in this off season Laron Landry, of the Washington Redskins, has decided to prepare for the role of the Hulk. Whew lawd!
The NCAA decided, in a move similar to the NFL, to move kickoffs to the 35 yard line and place touchbacks at the 25 yard line. Great. We love less competition.
Major League Baseball has to be embarrassed since their reigning NL MVP Ryan Braun became the first player to successfully appeal a drug suspension.
Ryan Braun needs to accept the gift he was given and shut up about it considering a mistake by the testing person is really the only reason his suspension was overturned.
Prior to her crash (caused by her teammate), Danica Patrick could have placed well on Saturday’s Nationwide race. She was angry and had every right to be. Unfortunately, she just returns to being the Anna Kournikova of auto racing.
The NASCAR guys on FOX deserve an award or something for broadcasting during a five hour rain delay only for the Daytona 500 to be postponed until Monday.
